Stockholm 70

18 September 1970, Konserthuset, Stockholm, Sweden
Comments:
I've picked up a few versions of this show over the years and all have poor sound quality. This version is a low gen remaster I recieved in a trade a few weeks back and is definitely a major upgrade. A great performance by the band with the usual jawdropping guitar heroics from Rory and is much more enjoyable to listen to thanks to the upgrade.
